Cucina Rustica and Pizza (North Palm Beach)

Posted on October 26th, 2009 · Italian North Palm Beach Pizza

***** Cucina Rustica and Pizza, 1000 US Highway 1, North Palm Beach, Florida 33408 (561) 355-0361.

Had dinner the other day (or is it night?) in a really-nice “white tablecloth” Italian joint in North Palm Beach…Cucina Rustica and Pizza. Now don’t get nervous… although Cucina’s got tablecloths, your tee shirts and shorts will do-just fine in this “establishment.” On the pricing front…neighborhood prices…dinners come with salad and pasta side.

I did a real simple “taste test”…chicken marsala ($15.95), eggplant parmigiana ($12.95), cheese ravioli in a pink vodka sauce ($12.95), veal parmigiana ($16.95), large plain pizza ($11.95)…everything was right on the money. I especially liked the veal parm which was tender–in a real nice marinara sauce and the chicken marsala, soft as butter.

Cucina Rustica’s menu has the full-boat of appetizers, salads, pastas and numerous pizza-combinations. Very pleasant servers…and like I said before, reasonable prices.

Cucina Rustica’s decor…bright, airy, no crazy boxcar trellises.

I really enjoyed Cucina Rustica. The joint is open Monday-Saturday 11am-10pm and Sunday 4pm-10pm.

    Ron G.: Just had a chance to read your post.

    Hands down, Matteo’s located in Hallandale is my pick. The food, service are outstanding. This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants.

    Thanks for reading…
